The museum is in the house where the Grimm family lived while they were in Steinau. That in itself is cool. Downstairs you see the kitchen and some furnishings, which is a nod to that era. Half of the downstairs talks about the family history....More

Nice and cosy atmosphere in the Brüder Grimm Haus. Gives you the feeling to be living in the time of the authors.

Photo taken is not allowed!! There are the lockers at front to keep your camera and stuffs. I enjoyed this museum. The ticket can enter the Steinau museum which is opposite the Brother Grimms' house.

It's a nicely complex exhibition about the Grimm Brothers, with quite some interactive sections; for example, visitors can listen into various Grimm fairy tales with the headset funnily embedded in a textile crown, implying that the visitor is the Frog Prince. The exhibition is very...More
